Feel like heading down to New Zealand to escape the impending Chicago winter? IndependentTraveler.com alerted me to the Kiwi Explorer Pass. You get to check out 4 Kiwi cities: Auckland, Rotorua, Christchurch and Queenstown.
The cost? Around $1100 from Los Angeles or San Francisco and it's good from February 26 to April 30th of 2011. You can also throw in a stopover to the Cook Islands at no additional charge on the way to/from New Zealand.
The only downsides is that you're on your own getting to LA or SF and you won't be earning United Airlines miles on this (since Air NZ and United are partners in Star Alliance.)
